Two weeks into this whole forced “no weigh” thing and I sort of feel like… this is how it should be. I had initially thought that I would commit to weighing every day once I got to my goal weight, but that was assuming I got to my goal weight, and it wasn’t the last 10 lbs driving me insane. We’ll see how I feel in two weeks when I get on the scale again. If it’s 161 I think I may tear my hair out but I have high hopes.
Honestly, don’t have all that much to say this week, I’ve been all wakeup, work, workout, dinner, and then like an hour of internet/relax and then bed. Some weeks, I am boring. And that’s ok. I even decided I was too lame to hit the midnight showing of Avatar tomorrow, but the idea of 3am bed Wednesday, then up for 10am at work Thursday, workout, home at like 8:30, then packing and up for 5am to drive? No thanks. Especially because the work part of it is going to be a damn tough day trying to finish up everything scheduley-like a day early.
Last Week’s Numbers:
Monday: 1895 calories in, 40 mins eliptical (500 calories out) = 1395 calories
Tuesday: 1683 calories in, 12 mile bike ride, 4 mile run (950 calories) = 733 calories
Wednesday: 1571 calories in, 45 mins weights (200 calories) = 1371 calories
Thursday: 1888 calories in, 45 mins biking (500 calories) = 1333 calories
Friday: 1443 calories in, rest day = 1443 calories
Saturday: 2008 calories in, 4.65 miles of intervals (.25 mile sprint, .25 recovery, rinse and repeat)(500 calories) = 1508 calories
Sunday: 1522 calories in, rest day = 1522
Avg cals in per day: 1712
Avg cals out per day: 378
Avg net per day: 1333
Avg deficit per day: 478, or just under 1 lb loss per week. Dailyburn seems to agree and has me around 3.7 lbs loss per month. It’s week 3 of not weighing and honestly? Still pretty much loving it though I am sure curious. I would guess I was around 159 this morning?
This week’s plan:
Monday: 10k run (750 calories)
Tuesday: cybil and weights (700 calories)
Wednesday: 10 mile bike, 5 mile run (700 calories)
Thursday: 12 mile bike and weights (600 calories)
Saturday: 1/2 mile swim, 12 mile bike, 5k run (900 calories)
I will be traveling all day Friday so while I’m sure I’ll be bouncing off the walls after 11+ hours in the car, I doubt I’ll have time to do anything. Saturday, we’re attending a wedding in the afternoon…but am SO excited to make use of the hotel pool and workout facilities to do a full sprint tri in the morning before. Am I insane or what? Sunday we have plans to rock an amusement park so I’m figuring a few miles of walking, and then Monday 11+ hours in the car again. Before that, I’m just trying to pack in all the work and workouts and uh…packing I need to do before I leave.
Most lame post ever? Definitely in contention. It happens. Brain is already on vacation. Question of the week – what do you have planned for the 4th? Fireworks? Veggie burgers on the grill? Water balloon fights? Inquiring minds want to know…
